Mines also a non sticker version bought in 98'. Tune being now 18 years old (i was same age when bought it, the teen years of buying garage) I prefer the ''for the man dem mix'' though both mixes are class. It very rare record and finding a mint copy of this is incredibly hard to come by, as during the time when it come out every dj was caining this including non garage djs. Meaning prob. every copy got sold out quicktime and prob was killed condition wise in some club world wide as remember cd's didnt exist bk then. Though odd as it sounds i love the lil crackles at the start of my copy, its my crackles n pops i created and they are awesome they add such an essense of authenticity, the old school vibe to the sound. i dunno how a new fresh copy would sound now, but to me i love my slightly used wax :)

Ps is the ''For The Man Dem'' mix the same as the ''Darkside Mix'' on the repress (unofficial one mentioned below)????

EDIT: I have also noticed from the vid ''for the man dem mix'' my copy (1998 version) seems to end around 5 min 50 seconds with a bass fade out. The vid seems to have a drum break to end seems this was added after thus making the vid 7 mins odd.
